Her Post-Doctoral Research Project is entitled Through the river landscapes. The City of the Tagus Estuary.

Beyond the administrative boundaries often materialized by the river, this project focuses on watercourses and riverbanks of the Tagus Estuary River Basin as a geographical centre of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area. The goal is to understand, through drawings, how water can be the 'new' centre of the 'city of two banks': the City of the Tagus Estuary (CTE). Water can function from being limit and barrier to the strongest binder, 'natural' link and shared public space of the CTE.
